I've been thinking of investing in a set of wireless IP cameras to monitor the dog when he's at home on his own to make sure he's ok. He's in the latter stages of renal failure, he's not normally left long on his own for this reason even though he just sleeps but if he is unwell getting prompt help will make a lot of difference.
I've come across Rovio which seems to get a lot of negative reviews initially but seems to have improved considerably with more recent firmware. I'm just wondering if anyone has bought one and how they get on with it? The benefit of Rovio is the flexibility which means it would be easier to keep an eye on the dog regardless of where he goes but I'm concerned about its navigation system as it seems to rely on a beacon system with no additional proxmity system. When developing robots previously as part of an AI course at Uni, this system was something of a disaster as without a proximity system the robot easily drove itself into trouble.
